Excellence is never an accident. It is always the result of high intention, sincere effort, and intelligent execution. Aristotle Sunday, February 16, 14 • Slide 10: Factual or emotional evidence • “Excellence is never an accident. It is always the result of high intention, sincere effort, and intelligent execution; it represents the wise choice of many alternatives - choice, not chance, determines your destiny.” ― Aristotle (emotional evidence, pathos)

http://www.flickr.com/photos/44124348109@N01/4930439366/ spectacularly successful Sunday, February 16, 14 • Slide 12: Factual or emotional evidence • Story about how Bill Gates’ college experience helped him despite the fact that he didn’t graduate from college (factual evidence from by Richard Ekman, president of the Council of Independent Colleges). • “Some people believe they can bypass college and still earn a good income—the Bill Gates effect, if you will. Too much has been made of the rare college drop-outs who make good. Bill Gates is, indeed, a spectacularly successful entrepreneur and innovator, and also a socially responsible philanthropist. While it is truethat as a Harvard student, he rarely went to class and eventually dropped out, it’s also true that he was able to use Harvard’s computer facilities in the middle of the night and talk with faculty members he knew. People who knew him as a high school student in Seattle also had friends who were students at the University of Washington and gave him “unofficial” access to computing facilities. Like the occasional star athlete who makes it big, Gates is not a model for most young people. For them, college remains worthwhile long-term investment.”

it makes the difference Sunday, February 16, 14 • Slide 13: Factual or emotional evidence • :” The B.A., which has become a requirement to get a job interview, often has absolutely nothing to do with what the job requires. (But) the reality in today's world is that having the B.A. makes the difference” (from Charles Murray. factual evidence, logos)

problem-solving creativity expression team work Sunday, February 16, 14 • Slide 15: Factual or emotional evidence • : “Employers say that the skills they want in their new employees are those of problem-solving, creativity, clear written and oral expression, and the ability to work in teams. These are precisely the skills that the liberal arts teach and are emphasized in the small classes of liberal arts colleges.” Richard Ekman, factual evidence, logos

be a fantastic student Sunday, February 16, 14 • Slide 16: Factual or emotional evidence • Be a fantastic student, talk to your professors, meet people in your field and work with them, http://www.flickr.com/photos/31810320@N05/4560358711/

choose excellence, success is not enough Sunday, February 16, 14 • Slide 17: Call to Action (pages 42-43) • Call to Action: You have the opportunity right now to choose excellence over success, what you do now will affect your career

Excellence, therefore, is not an act, but a habit.” ― Aristotle • So choose excellence over success, consider what you do in college will affect the rest of your career, and start now
